Darren Waller's Retirement Decision Looms: Giants Brace for Possible Exit

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller is on the brink of a pivotal decision regarding his football future, with sources close to the team indicating retirement is likely imminent, according to ESPN. Waller, 31, hinted at an impending choice during an Instagram Live session, having refrained from participating in the team's voluntary offseason activities this spring.
The Giants' mandatory minicamp looms next week, where Waller is expected to finalize his decision amidst speculation that he's leaning towards retiring. Throughout the offseason, New York has prepared for this possibility by bolstering their tight end roster through free agency and the draft, notably selecting Theo Johnson from Penn State in the fourth round. Johnson has even seen first-team action during Waller's absence.
Despite the team's proactive approach in planning for his potential retirement, it would still be a positive surprise for the Giants if Waller opts to return for his tenth season. Waller, who has recently focused on his music career and expressed doubts about his commitment to football, has also been vocal about mental health advocacy, drawing from his own experiences with substance abuse and personal challenges.
Reflecting on a recent health scare that landed him in the hospital, Waller has been contemplating the broader implications on his life, a journey that may lead to the conclusion of his professional football career.
